VALE COUNCIL TO CLAMP-DOWN ON TAXIS TRADING OUT-OF-AREA

New conditions are to be imposed on local licenced taxis to clamp down on them trading outside their licensed area for substantial periods.

New conditions are to be imposed on local licensed taxis to clamp down on them trading outside their licensed area for substantial periods.

Anyone applying for a licence to operate a taxi in Penarth and the Vale of Glamorgan is – from now on –  going to have to prove they have a “ bona fide intention to ply for hire within the Vale of Glamorgan” .

The new stipulation is being made to stop any taxi operator who doesn’t intend to “predominantly ply for hire within the Vale of Glamorgan” getting a hackney carriage licence authorising them to do so.

What’s more, anyone applying for a taxi licence – even if they do plan to work mostly ion the Vale of Glamorgan – will now be refused a licence if they also intend to trade outside the Vale for “a substantial amount of time”

These conditions will also apply when taxi licences are transferred to “another proprietor”
during the term of the licence.
